Types of Water Shoes

Water sandals

Water sandals are a practical choice for someone who does not demand the high level of protection and traction offered by the water shoes. They are great for summer use and extremely comfortable because of the open design. However, the open design means they do not give a lot of foot protection, so it is important to be careful when walking or climbing in slippery places.

Water shoes

Water shoes are the most versatile option with the ability to give traction and toe protection similar to normal land shoes, but also the comfort and quick drying ability of water sandals. The look and style of these shoes vary significantly. They can look much-like a pair of athletic shoes while others can appear like a simple pair of sandals. Also, the versatile nature of the water shoes makes them a practical choice away from the water. For instance, they are great to wear for a land excursion that includes hiking in an area with plenty of rocky or steep terrain. Water shoes are particularly popular with canoeists.

Leopard Shoes

Never do we ever think of leopard print as being a subtle fashion statement.Whatever your style is, a girl should own classic pieces of clothing, shoes and accessories in her wardrobe. Because whenever the occasion calls for it, you just have to reach in to your closet for them and need not to freak out and scour the mall just to get them.

Must have pieces in your closet should include (according to Tim Gunn) a little black dress, a blazer, a polo shirt, a good pair of trousers, black high heels and a good pair of under wear. Of course that’s not the only things you need but yeah, you should have at least one of each.

Then if you want to amp up your style, you can get additional pieces that puts an exclamation point into your ensemble like statement shoes, jewelry or bag. What comes to my mind that can give a rather boring little black dress the punch it needs is by pairing it with leopard print shoes. I’ve seen fashion bloggers sporting this get-up and it totally looks chic.

Maintain the Different Shoe Materials

Leather

Leather is a material that can benefit from a regular clean. After every wear, it is useful to give the shoes a wipe to remove the most noticeable dirt and debris. Once the dirt is removed, they can be cleaned with a solution of saddle salt and water. This is a great way to revive the look of the shoes, but it is important to avoid getting the leather too wet.

Canvas

Canvas sneakers can easily get dirty and pick up mud when in use. The best way to clean these shoes is to wait until they are fully dry. A great cleaning solution is baking soda, laundry detergent and a light scrubbing-brush. If the sneakers feel a little wet after cleaning, they can be filled with non-inked white paper to help shorten the drying time.

Rubber

Rubber is likely to be one of the easiest materials to clean. This is a very hard-wearing and durable material to clean so it is relatively easy to get the original look back even if they get extremely dirty. However, there are certain situations that need extra care when cleaning. For instance, if they get covered in paint it is still possible …
